Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents a robust Adaptive Fuzzy Neural Controller (AFNC) suitable for motion control of a multilink robot manipulator. The proposed controller has the following salient features: (1) dynamic fuzzy neural networks structure, i.e. fuzzy control rules can be generated or deleted automatically, (2) adaptive learning, (3) online learning of the robot dynamics, (4) fast learning speed, and (5) fast convergence of tracking error. Global stability of the system is established using Lyapunov approach. Computer simulation studies of a two-link robot manipulator demonstrate that excellent tracking performance can be achieved under external disturbances
